Legislative Watch

Coming to WestlawNext Canada 2018, Legislative Watch is an exciting feature that will allow customers to track a bill from parliament and all provincial and territorial legislatures. Researchers can track individual bills or can track bills relating to specific statutes.

Related Proceedings

Keycite Canada on WestlawNext Canada currently contains the direct history of a case available on the History tab. This includes graphical KeyCite which offers a pictorial view of your case’s history. It’s the fastest way to see how a case has moved through the court system. WestlawNext Canada will now be adding relationships to cases that are not part of the direct appellate history (applications, interlocutory motions, etc.)

Coming in 2018, “Related Proceedings” will link from the KeyCite display to a separate document which will include both the direct history and any interlocutory matters at each level of that history chain so you get more case relationships and more case information.

RESEARCH TIP


Alternate forms of the search term

When searching WestlawNext Canada any search term entered will give you alternate forms of the search term. For example: the term ‘child’ also retrieves ‘child’, ‘children’, ‘child’s’ and ‘children’s’. If you want ONLY an exact term, without variations; use the “Exactly as Typed” connector which looks like a number sign (#) BEFORE your search term e.g. #child. This will ensure only search results with the term you have specified will show up in your results. Please remember to use the advanced search template by prefacing your search with “adv:”.

This is just another example of how easy it is to browse and search our commentary!
